The table is often the center of life in a home whether I am enjoying a simple meal, savoring that second cup of coffee, reading a new poem, having family discussions, or catching up on news. I am a teacher,writer, wife, pet mother, sister, aunt, baker, gardener, and photographer. I enjoy creating new recipes,capturing simple beauty in photographs,arranging bouquets from my garden flowers, and living with four seasons in my corner of the world. My piles and lists of books to read are tall and long, and there is much coffee left to drink. Life if good.
